"Y" SoySoy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans.
After harvesting, the beans are cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated.
The leftover bean husks are commonly used as animal feed so none of the product is wasted.
So "Y" use soy wax?
-made from a renewable and sustainable source, a preferred alternative to non-renewable petroleum-based paraffin wax
-non-toxic and non-carcinogenic
-no pesticides or herbicides -an excellent choice for those who wish to burn environmentally friendly candles
-low melt point, therefore burning cooler, longer and safer than paraffin
-no harmful soot emissions -water soluble
Fragrances are probably the most complex ingredients in the candle and generally created with a number of ingredients, a blend of essential oils with aroma ingredients to create a good performing and pleasant smelling fragrance. Our fragrances are premium lab calibrated, suitable for both candles and body products. Most importantly, our fragrances are phthalate free.
When you do not want to interfere with the aroma of great food or wine, our "Y" Pure unscented candles are the perfect choice.
Our wicks are the highest quality available, made from pure cotton with an external paper braid. They are lead and zinc free, specifically designed for natural waxes.
"Y" Candle Safety
To ensure the best burn, always keep your wicks trimmed to around 5mm. Keep your candle free from any foreign materials like matches and trimmed wick. Burn candle on a flat even surface away from drafts and flammable materials, no longer than 4hrs at a time. Allow to completely cool before relighting. Most of our candles come with handy lids that can be used to snuff out your candle.
